On A Young Lady's Sixth Anniversary

Rating: 2.7
Baby Babbles--only one,
Now to sit up has begun.

Little Babbles quite turned two
Walks as well as I and you.

And Miss Babbles one, two, three,
Has a teaspoon at her tea.

But her Highness at four
Learns to open the front door.

What a subtle way to childhood write the rapid passing of time. I would suggest an investigation into her poetry and short stories, in my opinion another example of a kiwi who wrote better after the contrast of travelling over seas. Having read so many of Mansfields's stories, remembering the impact at high school under the gift of a good English teacher, then later studying New Zealand Literature and Katherine Mansfield at university, read so often over the later years, Katherine will always be to me, hello old friend.
